At last

Pipped at the post
Some laugh, some say
Could have pushed it
On the straight

On last legs
Witty repartee
No breath for words
Opponents parade

No quick comeback
Nor clever with hands
The aim in my shoot
Like rubber bands

My gait's not long
Nor is it fast
When race days over
Can I come last?
